Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Fresh aroma, slightly sweet, hints of rock melon and coconut with a delicate finish. This specially designated sake is roughly filtered, thus opaque in appearance, and has a slightly sweeter flavor.

Learn About Rock Sake

It all began back in the 3rd century when Japanese artisans milled rice to create the first sake. Rock Sake uses the same handcrafted techniques to make our very own artisanal sake in the US.

Learn About Other Oregon

Learn About Junmai-Ginjo

Junmai-Ginjo

Junmai-Ginjo is one step higher than the Junmai classification. The rice must have a suimai-buai of at least 60%, meaning at least 40% of the original rice has been milled off, leaving more pure starch for the saké. Ginjo also includes more attention to the brewing process, with lower temperatures used for fermentation and the use of hand pressing. The resultant saké is in turn more light and delicate than Junmai, but also more complex, layered and fragrant.
